Nominated for the award: Environment
Company: Last XXX Apparel
Biography: As I noticed single serve plastic becoming a growing problem within society, I was inspired to help reduce this issue. I created a sustainable clothing brand called LASTXX Apparel where we collect and properly recycle 20 plastic bottles for every item sold. Then, the primary input for the apparel is recycled bottles! From bottle to thread closing the gap in the circular economy. Starting a business has allowed me to learn how to develop and execute a business plan. Being an entrepreneur has allowed me to turn problems into opportunities and have a more creative perspective!
